Expression of hepatitis C virus envelope proteins in transgenic mice.


In an attempt to establish a model for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, we produced mice transgenic for the HCV envelope genes, E1 and E2, under the control of a regulatory element from hepatitis B virus. F1-generation mice from the established founders demonstrated expression of both E1 and E2 proteins as glycosylated forms in their organs including the… (More)
